Year 10 Product Design Technology - Resistant Materials

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Norris.

This is a full year course in which students design and develop innovative outcomes using mixed materials in a workshop environment. Covering areas such as:

- Research and design 

- Materials technology 

- Electronics 

- Basic workshop skills 

- Computer Aided Design

Students will construct a number of projects throughout the year and further develop their understanding of the technology process by carrying out more in-depth research and development. They will also extend their knowledge and understanding of electronics and construction techniques from the manufacture of their outcomes. Greater emphasis is applied to creating their own designs using 3D software, 3D printers and the laser cutter as well as applying standard workshop techniques.

This course is highly recommended for students wishing to study Year 11 Product Design Technology and also leads on Year 11 Furniture and Construction and Mechanical Engineering.
